With recent changes to federal law, same-sex marriages are now legally recognized throughout the country. This means that any nontraditional couple will be afforded the same rights and responsibilities that traditional couples have always enjoyed. However, this also means that same-sex couples have to go through the same legal procedures in divorce and separation, as well.
At Mathis, Bates & Klinghard PLLC (MBK) in Clarksville, we know the process, and we can help you protect your interests as you are going through a divorce or separation. Our legal team represents clients throughout Kentucky and Tennessee.
While the law is clear that same-sex couples will be treated equally under the law, it is important to work with attorneys who are compassionate and will give you the full representation you deserve. At MBK, we provide an open, nonjudgmental atmosphere for our clients, and we take a progressive approach to the practice of law by proudly representing people from all walks of life. Your case is in good hands with the help of an LGBT lawyer.
